Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Hengst Gewurztraminer 2005 / 375 ml.

Item#: 24742

ST9393 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Jul/Aug 2007
Bright yellow. Mirabelle, marzipan and nutmeg on the expressive nose. Sweet, dense and highly concentrated, with real generosity and freshness to its fruit flavors. There’s a spiciness here from botrytis. Finishes tactile and powerful. With its 14.4% alcohol and 48 g/l r.s., this could hardly be more different in its balance from the dry and somewhat topheavy 2004, which is 16.2%, with just 4 grams of sugar. It would be a shame to drink this too soon.

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

ST94+94+ pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2006
Full yellow. Captivating aromas of orange peel, minerals and honey, with sweaty suggestions of vineyard peach and cumin. Wonderfully bracing and precise, with great penetration and cut to its flavors of mandarin orange, powdered stone and graphite. The tactile finish suggests dusty dry extract more than it does tannins. A very Germanic style of late-harvest wine, with an exhilarating purity to its botrytis and an impression of strong tartaric acidity. This is 9% alcohol, with 97 grams of residual sugar.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2006
Fresh, even racy, with grapefruit, lemon and honey aromas and flavors matched to an elegant profile. Still tightly wound, with a vivid structure. Needs time to open and gain complexity. Best from 2009 through 2020. 300 cases made.

Forget all your ideas about this unfashionable grape! Cool and fresh, but substantial and chalky, this taste like a cuvee of excellent Chablis and a spicy dry gewurz. Long, crisp and flinty finish with a lot of energy. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)

Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Zind | Chardonnay - Auxerrois 2020 / 750 ml.

Chardonnay - Auxerrois
2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 60829

RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 9th Mar 2023
From Chardonnay and Auxerrois vines in shale limestone soils in Hunawihr, the 2020 Zind offers an excellent, exciting bouquet with ripe and concentrated aromas of crushed limestones and lemon peels. This is a medium to full-bodied, dense, lush and tensioned wine with great purity and persistent salinity. The finish is long, intense and full of energy and power as well as mineral grip and tension, with lovely lemon bitters. It’s a gorgeous wine. 12.8% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in April 2022. (Stephan Reinhardt)
